We sat at the bar because it was so busy. The staff behind the bar were excellent. The food was great and the apple ale was enjoyable.

I went to Empire Brewing on a Saturday night and waited 45 minutes for a table. Unfortunately, the food was not worth the wait! Our meals seemed to be prepared ahead of time and simply nuked in the microwave prior to serving. Very bland and...More
